A couple years back, Adam Sandlerâ€™s production company, Happy Madison, formed a deal with Netflix. The deal was that Happy Madison would produce four original films for the streaming company. While Adam Sandlerâ€™s films havenâ€™t exactly been a beacon of quality in the recent decade, theyâ€™ve managed to find their niche audience and capitalize on them. Sure, the films arenâ€™t amazing, but thereâ€™s a large subset of folks that do like them.
As such, the deal with Netflix seemed like a great one for both parties. Netflix would practically have a guaranteed return on investment, and Happy Madison would be able to continue making the movies they love, except for a potentially larger audience. The first film to come out of the deal was the much-maligned RIDICULOUS 6, which currently holds a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes. In addition to the poor reception, the film was also known for its controversial portrayal and treatment of Native Americans.
This next venture seems to be a completely different ball of wax. Rather than go for the standard PG-13 films they’ve been making in recent years, Happy Madisonâ€™s next production, THE DO-OVER, goes for a hard-R.
The film reunites Sandler with fellow SNL alum, David Spade, in what looks to be quite the raunchy comedy.
Check out the red band trailer for the film below!
â€œIn THE DO-OVER, Adam Sandler plays â€˜Maxâ€™ and David Spade plays â€˜Charlie,â€™ old friends tired of their mundane lives who reunite at their 25th high school reunion for the ultimate mulligan: they decide to wipe the slate clean for a doÂ-over. After faking their deaths and assuming new identities, could their lives be better the second time around?â€
